I Love the United States of Tara

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 25 People

    One of My Favorite Shows.

    You would think more people would join this group. I can't wait for season 2.   After the first episode, I was hooked!  I love Buck, suprisingly.  And T's filthy mouth keeps me laughing!

    Gimme

    There's no spoiler in this story ;) Tonight Tara's therapist met one of her avatars, with Max. After they left, she slumps back into the chair: "****". I suppose not everyone does this, but when I first meet a health professional I am always positive-thinking...
